CASE: NZXT TEMPEST
PSU: CORSAIR HX-1000
CPU: INTEL Q6600 GO 2.4ghz lapped
GPU: EVGA GTX 285 x2 SLI
MB: EVGA 750i SLI FTW
RAM: CORSAIR XMS2 8gb 800mhz
HS: MASSCOOL 8WA741 lapped
HDD: SEAGATE 500gb
OS: Windows VISTA ULTIMATE x64

CPU Temps: 35-40 idle / 50-60 load
GPU Temps: 40 idle / 60 load

I CAN GET 3.2 ON STOCK VOLTAGE WITH THIS SETUP, BUT TEMPS ARE 60-70 LOAD. TO HOT FOR ME.
CAN ANYONE RECOMMEND A HEATSINK/FAN THAT WILL TAKE ME TO 50 LOAD WITH 3.2. OR FOR THAT MATTER JUST
A GOOD HEATSINK. - THANK YOU

I can't believe you lapped a masscool HS.... Anywho, I'd suggest the OCZ vendetta 2 but your results are going to vary.

In the forums it's considered as shouting and is more likely to get you ignored, the opposite effect that you are looking for.

The difference between good thermal paste and great thermal paste is maybe 3 - 5 C.

I use Arctic Silver AS5. Also tried AS Ceramique. No detectable difference. Also had no detectable difference before and after the AS5 "cured".

^ or stock thermal paste and OCZ freeze, upto 15C difference.

ok well thank you 4 that tip

The Xigmatek HDT-s1283/1284 HS is the best you will get for your money. As for thermal paste, I use Arctic Cooling MX-2 because it is supposed to perform the best and, more importantly, I find it to be the best thermal paste I have ever spread.

all-copper HS's are expensive and over-rated. Choose an HDT type like the Xigmatek or OCZ for the best performance. I got AC MX-2 also but only cuz it was convenient and not generic. Most of them would do fine.

Xigmatek is on its way thanks
